An International double album of latterday exotica. The DJ activates the emotional SuperDrive within the freshly rendered Lounge Cubism. You arrange to meet for the common, eroticizing file sharing. Through the finely cut cocktail glasses the ladies' romantic looks ignite rainbows which burn-in into PDA monitors. As a result men's hearts melt like amorous ice cubes on hot sheets.
Tropical mist, exotic condiment, pacific secrets and extended processor capacity maneuver the banter - a rendezvous of lascivious multitasking. Besides you hear music that suggests a sensual ambience which resembles the sensation to be on a never-ending trip. Meanwhile, "the tarantula crawls out of the terrarium and up the Tiki lantern."

Could be worse I guess
There's some ok songs on here. Don't get turned off by the first track, which feels very forced; did someone watch a lot Quentin Tarantino films?
Decent "DJing" done with exotica flourishes.

Uneven but entertaining
Volume One is nearly perfect. Volume Two is marginal.
As a childhood fan of "Silent Running," I really enjoy Nature Boy, but it's hardly what I'd call exotica.

I agree with everyone when they say this compilation sucks

"Exotica" is possibly the lamest genre name used, world over, and I dont know who the majority of these people are but the simple fact that such an exhaustive collection of space age lounge music can be put together with taste and smart+fun sounding contributions is pleasing in its own right.
As for the sound, it's the style of future/space cocktail lounge music originally laid by the likes of Esquivel! and carried on by bands like Combustible Edison, The Coctails, Stereolab, etc.
Good stuff. Is this possibly the same person using a aliases? It would almost be more surprisingly if it wasnt...

A. K. A.: Martinibomb
For those of you that may not know... Eric and Ryan Kilkenny from volume 1, track 2 (Bongo Avenger), are also known as "The Martinibomb". These 5 stars are just for them alone.
Check out their other Comfort Stand releases, you will probably like "The Coconut MonkeyRocket" If this style of music is up your alley.

Pour yourself a mai-tai & kick back! Well-produced, loads of fun-- this album updates the 'exotica' sound, tossing in some sampling, electronics & synths for a modern audience. Diverse songs from diverse bands.

a lovely understated Nature Boy
IBID to everybody; I just wanted to point out how lovely (and yes, melancholy) Philip Jackson's Nature Boy piece is. The sound collages are a good counterpoint to it.

This needs to be on your iPod
Exotica deluxe! An impressive collection of songs by an even more impressive collection of talented artists who truly "get it." First-quality tiki, exotica, groove-spy, cocktail, with a chill edge. These songs will make your summer more excellent.
I dowloaded nearly every track from my Southern California trailer park while wearing my fez and drinking a tasty concoction of whatever booze was left in the cupboard. Now I have to bid on more tikis for sale on e-bay. Chin Chin.
simply amazing. reminds me of good old martin denny's exotica masterpieces and david shea and scanner's electronica for young lovers. plus more!

A refreshing release with top-notch music and top-notch packaging. You may find that a few tracks are not to your liking, but you are bound to find many more that you LOVE in this 2-CD set. The collection has wide appeal, so wide that folks in their 80s love it just as well as the little kids! Eat up!

superlative exotica compilation
Just spectacularly good - even for those who are only mild fans of exotica, like myself. Highlights such as Don Tiki, Tipsy, amazing moog action from Dana Countryman, and much much more. This compilation will make you want to repair to the Tonga Room in San Francisco and partake of their fifteen-dollar boat-sized cocktails. Must.. download.. now..
